Adlington Music And Arts Society return to the stage next week, fresh from winning a host of awards for a previous production.

Last year they performed a “particularly raunchy” musical version of Bad Girls, which proved to be popular with the audience.

It was also a hit with the National Operatic And Dramatic Association, who gave the society four trophies at a regional awards night in Southport.

AMAS won the best show award and overall best production, while Christian Brabin won best direction of a musical and Dave Dossett picked up the musical director award.

The society returns to the stage on Monday with their version of Jesus Christ


The rock opera, by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, follows the last week in the life of Christ as recorded in the Gospels.

From Palm Sunday to Good Friday, it includes everything from raw emotion to despair and rejection.

The show opened on Broadway in October 1971 and has since been performed around the world.

There have been numerous different interpretations and AMAS has promised a host of innovative ideas in their show.

Jesus Christ Superstar will open at 7.15pm on Monday at Adlington Community Centre, on Railway Road.

It runs until Saturday, May 3.

Tickets cost £10 for adults and £8 for children and senior citizens.

They are available by calling the box office on 07799 486876.
